In this paper, we first presents the challenges in social-aware video delivery. Then, we present a principal framework for data-driven social video delivery approaches. Moreover, we identify the unique characteristics of social-aware video access and the social content propagation, and closely reveal the design of individual modules and their integration towards enhancing users' experience in the social network context.
